TOSCA, alla Scala (scritto per Opera-l)

giovedì 10 luglio 1997


I attended the past Thursday Tosca, a new La Scala production of the Puccini’s opera. It was the third performance. Semyon Bychkov was the conductor, and Luca Ronconi the stage director. The main characters were sung  by Galina Gorchakova (Tosca), Neil Shicoff (Mario) and Ruggero Raimondi (Scarpia). The cast was the same of the first performance. It is not my aim to do a complete review. All of us know Tosca very well, and, I think, all of us love Tosca, perhaps the most popular of the Puccini’s operas.
